Along with my rebuilt factory fan, in 89* stop and go traffic, we barely got above 180*. I'd drive it to work every day in the summer, luckily I'm retired.
The AFCO rad probably would have done the trick, but moved forward 3 inches it was an inch too tall. Had to eliminate the hood latch.
The guy who welded that radiator is an artist-show quality.
Got an army buddy who's been running Ford's for ever.
Since I'm not a car guy, his advice is welcome.
Whats that you say? Try everything.....
So new radiator and fan for cooling....
Bought a Griffin rad.- 3 inch deep -1 1/4- two row.
Took the original 1990 Lincoln Town Car (302) fan- which rotates counter clockwise, apart.
Flipped the spider, and replaced the blades--to run clockwise. Like the rest of the world-(1960).
Got a hurricane under the hood now.
May not need a shroud ( I hope). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCEiIfiHudg

since I live in the big city where every one drives like morons,
I switched to disc brakes up front. Like every thing on this hot rod project-
had to adjust a few things to get the kit to work.
Next - new wiper motor.
